Investigates effects of school mobility on reading and math achievement for low-income Black children in Chicago Longitudinal Study. Children who frequently changed schools between kindergarten and seventh grade performed approximately one year behind their nonmobile peers on reading and mathematics achievement tests. Findings indicate that it is frequent rather than occasional mobility that significantly increases the risk of underachievement. (Author/JDM)
